FOO FIGHTERS latest single “Waiting on a War” was released last week. The song is the latest preview of the forthcoming new album ”Medicine at Midnight” which will release on February 5th, 2021.
Foo Fighters have just shared the official video of the latest single on their youtube channel. The clip is directed by Paola Kudacki and contains the scenes of the Foo Fighters’ performs and shots of young people who have a carefree outlook are threatened by ominous-looking adults.
The band’s frontman Dave Grohl shared the meaning behind the track in detail. He wrote:
“As a child growing up in the suburbs of Washington D.C., I was always afraid of war. I had nightmares of missiles in the sky and soldiers in my backyard, most likely brought upon by the political tension of the early 1980s and my proximity to the Nation’s Capitol.
My youth was spent under the dark cloud of a hopeless future.”
He said about the talk with his daughter in one of his interview with NME:
“She just asked me: ‘Dad, are we going to war’? It reminded me of how I felt when I was her age, and I just thought: ‘What a fucking drag!’ How depressing is it that childhood could be robbed of that beauty and innocence by this dark feeling of dread? So that’s what ‘Waiting On A War’ is about.”
